Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In 2010, the Illinois Water Use Act was amended to make repo1ting for all high-capacity wells or intakes mandat01y in Illinois, including agricultural inigation. The act gave agricultural inigators five years to comply, which means iITigators are required to report their water use from both wells and surface water intakes starting in the 2015 growing season. This presentation will describe how the data from the Illinois Water Invent01y Program (IWIP) has been traditionally used by scientists in Illinois, discuss changes in repo1ting required by the Water Use Act amendments, and describe how IWIP is being implemented to include iITigation reporting starting in 2015.
